### Research interests and background

My research focuses on problems in representation theory and algebraic geometry. I am most interested in the topology and geometry of algebraic varieties arising from representation theory. Specific topics of interest include perverse sheaves, quiver varieties, equivariant cohomology, and Bernstein–Sato polynomials. My papers and preprints are on my research page, and my CV is available here.

I completed my PhD at the University of Chicago in June 2016 under the supervision of Victor Ginzburg. I was an undergraduate at MIT.
